14 people who were arrested on suspicion of arson with connection to the Greenwich blaze have been released without charge. However, the investigation is still on-going.

The fire, which took place at Midday on Monday at Studio 338, Boord Street, saw 100 firefighters and 15 fire engines tackle the fire. Thick black smoke could be seen for miles across London as the emergency services received over 50 calls after the blaze broke out.

One man in his 20s is said to be in critical condition after being air-lifted to hospital, with the Metropolitan Police stating he is “fighting for his life”.

The fire, also affecting a nearby industrial warehouse and a scrap yard is still being dampened by the fire service while the building remains too structurally unsafe for firefighters to enter. According to the London Fire Brigade, most of the ground floor and parts of the first floor had caught alight.

The Evening Standard has posted pictures of people jumping to safety from the burning roof.

The Ibizan-style nightclub, which is famous for hosting parties such as Elrow, Cocoon and Regression Sessions has only recently been refurbished.

Polce have advised people living in the area to keep their windows and doors closed as a precaution.
